19" 403. Much better looking.

I can't believe we live in an age where 18's look "small" for a compact sport sedan.

Definitely the 18s look small, but the ride nevertheless is great, being runflats. But both 18s and 19s look NARROW

Also in the neither camp. The 19" 401's look best to me - but only available on Luxury/Modern line here in Canada. Actually I found all wheel options for this car to be so-so at best.

The only reason I voted for the 18s is because its cheaper to get them and I would be swapping for new wheels anyway. I like the M5 Reps.

I'd go for the 18s purely for the added benefit of less rotational weight (which affects many areas). Also, kudos to the guy who revived this thread from 7+ months ago haha

What are the weights? Would also be interesting to know how the forged 405Ms stack up.

As far as looks go though, 403M all the way.

Dunno if all of you are tracking this detail, but the governed top speed changes when you go from square to staggered summers. 130-155mph. Not so big a deal in the states, unless you track it, but over here it's a big deal (at least to me).

Oh, and my winter set up is square black 17s. If you size the tires right, the overall diameter is almost identical to the 19" bmw rims, and doesn't look too bad either

400's are about 26.5lbs.

Did not know that, thanks for sharing!
